Over the past decade the links between health, particularly public health, and foreign and security policy have developed into a new international policy agenda. But what is shaping this agenda?
This paper explores how the international policy agenda has developed in the UK, particularly in relation to three key policy areas: migration and infectious disease; HIV/AIDS; and tobacco control. It asks what the dominant forces are in driving this policy agenda: public health, national interests, security concerns or other agents?
